Behind a low gate inside the Pembury complex, around eight 20-something men were sitting in a huddle in a children’s play area around 3pm, some sitting on a low wall, one or two perched on swings or rocking toys, talking earnestly and quietly among themselves. Most had their hoods up, one was wearing a scarf wrapped around his head, concealing his face. They stopped talking abruptly, and two got up immediately to leave, when approached by the Guardian. “Nah,” said one, barely glancing up. “We don’t want to talk.”
